antique bed to new chic bench.

oh happy day for me.

for christmas, my mom (with the help of my grandpa and grandma) crafted this beautiful bench from an old antique bed. DSC_0385


they used the headboard of a full sized bed as the back.

then, cut the foot-board in half and attached it to the back as the side rails.  the seat is removable slabs of wood with a hand sewn cushion (c/o of my grandma).


the front of the seat is made from one of the side rails of the bed frame.

~thanks to mom, grandma and grandpa for your hard work on this project~
